You are invited to showcase your community-based work at the 3rd Annual Project Fair, March 15th, from 1:00-2:30pm in the Michigan League Ballroom. The 2005 Symposium on Community-Based Work: Partnerships that Prosper, was developed to provide an opportunity for students, faculty, and community partners to share and showcase their collaborative work. This event showcases the myriad of faculty and student projects in local, national, and international communities.

Work can include, but is not limited to, courses that involve community projects and civic engagement, community-based research, student-initiated projects, community-focused student organizations and groups, and short or long-term collaborative projects. Showcased work may take the form of a poster, video, exhibit, or other format. The Ginsberg Center provides free poster boards (available now), and easels and tables at the Project Fair. Last year, more than 70 posters, exhibits, and organizations were represented. You are also welcome to join us at noon for the keynote address. This year we are honored to present Ismael Ahmed, the co-founder and Executive Director of ACCESS (Arab Community Center for Economic and Social Services). Based in Dearborn, MI, this organization is now the nation’s largest social service agency for the Arab community.
